If you love all things rustic & rusty, I just might be the thing for you.

Dressed in rich brown distressed leather, my reclaimed coat has an interesting marbled appearance. Stitched onto my cover is a tiny rusty rustic olde washer measuring a mere 14mm wide, through which you can sneak a peak of a vintage French postage stamp circa 1930s.

Open me up, and you’ll find I begin & end with beautiful floral paper made in Italy, which features light blue & apricot hues. In between, I’m filled with 36 sheets (72 pages) of tea-stained archive text paper for your tiny thoughts and things. On my first page, you’ll see the tiny snippet of a vintage French postage stamp which is visible when I am closed.

If you are wondering what you might do with me, you might just wear me and keep me blank, spell out a sentence or poem, keep your mantras & quotes, draw little sketches, or ask your friends to write something – it’s all up to you. Hand torn, my pages have been lovingly stitched with archival linen thread, and are dressed up with blue & white striped headbands.

Measuring 1 x 1 ¼ inches, I hang from a fine bronze chain which secures with a lobster clasp. My entire length of 16 inches (32 inches doubled up) means I can be worn, used, read & admired all at once.

Note: This length may be adjusted to suit.
